Product Expert External SSDs

The Samsung Portable SSD T5 1TB is an external SSD in a compact, aluminum casing. With a transfer speed of 540MB/s, this Samsung drive is a little speed merchant. You can transfer large files of 5GB, such as several RAW pictures, 4K footage, and game libraries in less than 10 seconds. Do you download files regularly? Thanks to the AES 256 encryption, your external disk is protected against viruses and hackers. In addition, you're the only one who has access to your data via a password. It weighs about as much as your smartphone and is about the size of a deck of playing cards, so you'll easily take the drive with you when you're on the go. Did it accidentally fall off the table? Thanks to a drop resistance of up to 2 meters, this drive can take a few blows. If your laptop, computer, or console doesn't have USB-C, simply connect it via the trusty included USB-A cable.
